iPad 2 announced by Apple

The iPad 2 has been the subject of innumerable rumors for the past several months, but today all of that finally comes to an end. Today at their event in San Francisco, Apple introduced the the iPad 2, which features a 9.7-inch 1024×768 display, new 1GHz dual-core A5 CPU, rear camera with 720p video capture, VGA front-facing camera, a gyroscope, and a new body that measures in at 8.8mm thick, thinner than both the previous iPad and the iPhone 4, and weighs 1.3 pounds. The new iPad will be available in both white and black, with the white model available right away unlike its iPhone 4 counterpart, and there will be models that work on both AT&T’s HSPA and Verizon’s EV-DO Rev. A. As for pricing and launch, you can expect the same price tags as the original iPad ($499 for 16GB WiFi all the way up to $829 for the 64GB WiFi+3G) with a ship date of March 11th. The original iPad is now priced as low as $349 for a refurbished WiFi-only 16GB model on Apple’s site, or you can pick up brand new original iPad for $399.

Alongside the iPad 2, Apple revealed a couple of new accessories for their updated tablet. There’s an HDMI adapter which will allow users to output 1080p video for $39. The adapter works with all apps and will even charge the iPad while in use. Additionally, there’s a new Smart Cover for the iPad 2, which is a bendable flap that covers the front of the iPad thanks to the use of magnets. It can also be used as a stand for the iPad, comes in polyurethane or leather, and will cost $39 or $69, respectively.

Unsurprisingly, the iPad 2 is more of an evolutionary upgrade from the original model, although there are still a few nice additions on-board. I’m sure that there are more than a few users that’ll be happy about the inclusion of two cameras, and the dual-core CPU should make getting around iOS pretty snappy, although it’s not like the original iPad was a slouch.  I just hope that, since Apple will be pushing out a white iPad 2 next week, the albino iPhone 4 won’t be far behind. So, initial impressions? Now that we know everything about the iPad 2, Are you going to buy one or do you plan to pick up a competing device like the following tablet PCs for much less?
